    • If you are applying for a Library Card after April 1st, you must first renew your PLATO membership for the coming year.  This is true even if you have not yet received a PLATO renewal notice. Renew your membership by logging in to your member profile, and following the prompts. 

  2. Complete the Library “Community Borrowing Card Application” online:
    • Be sure to select “PLATO” at the FIRST drop down question – Affiliation – on the Form.
